The mission of the Hatcher Pass Avalanche Center is to provide avalanche information and advisories to assist and educate the general public in avoiding avalanches.
HPAC provides avalanche information and advisories for the Hatcher Pass area in the Talkeetna Mountains of Alaska. Information contained in these advisories is intended to be used as a tool in conjunction with your personal backcountry hazard evaluation.
HPAC publishes advisories during the winter season for each weekend of the month as weather and conditions allow.
The center is 100% volunteer, which means that all funds supporting the center go straight to forecasts.
